Sixth Annual Sigma FC Showcase Attracts North America's top University Programs to Mississauga
2015 is quickly coming to a close, but one more major event remains on the calendar for Sigma FC academy players and other aspiring youth players from Southern Ontario. The 6th Annual SIGMA FC University Showcase runs over two days, December 17-18, 2015 at the Hershey Sportszone complex in Mississauga. The top recruiting event of its kind in Canada will feature 11 invited teams who will join the Sigma FC academy teams and perform in front of university coaches from Canada and the United States.
"We are very proud that our event has become such an important one on the recruiting calendars of schools across Canada and the United States, " said Sigma FC Technical Director Bobby Smyrniotis. " While we regularly have many coaches in attendance, what I am most proud of is the quality of programs who make it a priority to be here. The ultimate beneficiary of this will be the players from all the participating teams who will have the opportunity to impress."
Last year more than 80 coaches attended from top Canadian and US schools including the ACC, Big 10, AAC, PAC 12 and Big East to name a few. Many US based schools will be making their way north of the border after attending the USSF Development Academy Winter Showcase event in Florida- one of the marquee recruiting events in the United States.
In the 2015 season there were more than 44 active SIGMA FC grads playing across North America at the University level. Highlighting the season was three players reaching their National Final Four Championships- Chris Nanco (Syracuse), Richmond Laryea (Akron) and Dion Stergiotis (Charleston). Laryea and Domenic Samuel (Southern New Hampshire) also received NSCAA All-American and All-Conference honors among other accolades. Kwame Awuah (UConn), Eji Mrabure (Jacksonville) also were named to All-Conference first teams.
The 6th annual SIGMA FC University Showcase takes place December 17 & 18, 2015 at the Hershey SportZone complex in Mississauga. Media inquiries can be directed to Sasha Nagy at firstname.lastname@example.org (416) 616-5864
